Bio

Amazing! After you’ve once listened to his intense and expressive voice, you just tell yourself you can’t believe your eyes. This voice, this spirit, this energy: totally intoxicating.
You just have to be sure it’s the voice of an ol’ bluesman like Pink Anderson, Rainer Baumann, Paul Butterfield or Stevie Ray Vaughan. A little bit of Robben Ford paired with Buddy Guy and Albert King. You expect an aged guy and not a young feller in his twenties like Johnny Rieger is... Symbiotic to his chant he plays the guitar like he never did anything else. A little bit of everything but never too much and always authentic refreshing and modern. He’s just a phenomenon.
After his work with Timo Gross on his last album “Travellin” where Johnny participated with the vocals for "In the skillet"... Gross was immediately aware of Johnny’s talent and produced Johnny’s debut album “Come on”.
Full of songs out of his life all written by himself the album is a fantastic composition of modern bluesmusic. Besides Timo Gross as his producer who also plays the guitar contribute.Some other known musicians like Marcel Millot and Umbo both former Sidemen of Laith Al Deen and Paul Young and Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet) und Paul Young himself.
Live he is on stage with his band Matthias Scherer (Bass) and Michael Jochum(Drums). Johnny Rieger distinguishes itself with his youthfulness, freshness and amazing musicals skills...
